Prophet's Dilemma

Every act of rebellion expresses a nostalgia for innocence and an appeal to the essence of being.

Loneliness and the relationship between man and nature.

A alma do osso is an experimental documentary about  Domingos Albino Ferreira (also known as Dominguinhos da Pedra), a 71-year-old man who has lived alone for 41 years in caves in the countryside region of Itambé do Mato Dentro, Minas Gerais (Brazil). He survives on a meagre pension from the Brazilian government.

It starts with an epigraph by Guimarães Rosa: ‘Loneliness is too much for ourselves’. There are no dialogues or interviews in this documentary, and almost no speech. Practically all the information we receive comes from the images and sounds that characterize the countryside: beautiful landscapes of green hills and the sea, the man’s cave and the sounds of nature.
